Soaked 50gms of wheat in hot water, chopped some onion, a mushroom, a slice of red pepper and added to 450g mince. Teaspoon of coriander powder,turmeric, cumin and chilli powder. Mixed it all up and formed into small burgers or patties. Fried in a little oil and then popped in oven to make sure they cooked through with the potatoes I had been doing as wedges and the apple pie. Husband liked it. YUM. Meat cost £2 - rest was store/fridge cupboard stuff.

Playing Internet Ready Steady Cook
While my desire to make the best of our food is great - sometimes my ideas run dry. I don't have a great many recipe books but I do have a laptop! some days I take it to the kitchen and get on Google and type in "recipe" plus whatever is in the fridge in need of being eaten and/or what is lurking unused in the cupboard. Today it is minced lamb and Bulgar wheat.. I had brought the lamb with a few meal ideas in mind, and the Bulgar had been hanging around since some summer experiments with salads. There were a few possibilities but in the end I went with a spicy adaption which provided enough for dinner and some leftovers for lunch today. I have tried similar recipes in the past using Cous cous and mint.
